In the murky waters of the law, defence and prosecution do whatever it takes to win. Barrister Jack Roper rejected his former mentor and top prosecutor, Laurence Scammell QC to set up a defence-only chambers with passion for justice. Professional rivalry becomes personal when Laurence's beautiful and talented daughter, Laura becomes ever more deeply embroiled in the two men's struggle, forcing her to choose between deeply-held family loyalty and her conscience. Encouraged by his glamorous wife, the ruthless Honor Scammell, Laurence resolves to crush the opposition for good, no matter what it takes. With both sides drawn into ever fiercer conflict, there can only be one winner.
